Report: Celtics G Jrue Holiday agrees to 4-year extension

jrue holiday

Veteran guard Jrue Holiday has agreed to a four-year, $135 million extension with the Boston Celtics, ESPN reported Wednesday night.

Holiday came to Boston this past offseason, joining the Celtics as part of a trade that sent Malcolm Brogdon, Robert Williams III, a 2024 first-round draft pick and a 2029 unprotected first-round draft pick to the Portland Trail Blazers.

In 68 games (all starts) this season, the 33-year-old Holiday has averaged 12.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists for Boston, which is an NBA-best 62-17. The Celtics have already clinched the league’s No. 1 overall seed for the playoffs.

Holiday is in his 15th NBA season. The two-time All-Star spent time with the Philadelphia 76ers (2009-13), New Orleans Pelicans (2013-20) and Milwaukee Bucks (2020-23) before getting moved to Boston.

Holiday has career averages of 16.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 974 games (893 starts).

With Holiday now set to stick around, the Celtics have shown a commitment to keeping their current core together. Boston signed Jaylen Brown to a five-year, $304 million supermax extension last July after inking Kristaps Porzingis to a two-year, $60 million extension.

Brown’s deal was the richest in NBA history.

Boston has three games remaining in the regular season.
